Join us for our Winter Warmer weekend on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 November. We’ll be opening the Museum later than usual so you’ve got even more time to visit the Tunnel Shaft and explore the Engine House. Grab a glass of fizz and a mince pie from 4pm each day to get in the festive spirit – plus there’s 10% off in the Museum shop all weekend thanks to Museum Shop Sunday


Discover the local story of an engineering family that changed the world. head underground into our spectacular Grade II* listed Tunnel Shaft which once served as the Grand Entrance Hall for Victorian visitors. You can still see where the original staircases once would have been and where the early steam trains have coated the shaft walls in soot!

In the Engine House, you can explore our main museum exhibition which tells the story behind the Thames Tunnel and those who built it. View our museum displays, discover our collection of original Thames Tunnel memorabilia and Victorian peepshows, and look out for our large-scale models of the tunnelling shield and machinery.

From 4pm, join us for a glass of fizz and a mince pie to get into the Christmas spirit. Plus there’s 10% off our Museum shop all weekend with Museum Shop Sunday
